97th AMS Annual Meeting | 22–26 January 2017 | Seattle, WA

Seventh Conference on Transition of Research to Operations

view in conference program

Presentation Topics

The 7R2O conference supports the 2017 AMS theme by demonstrating how traditional and non-traditional observations are identified and verified in advances in research, technology and applications that drive transitions to meaningful operations. 7R2O is seeking papers describing recent advances in research, technology and applications that will support the Nation’s ability to provide more accurate weather, water, and climate information to customers around the world.  In addition, the 7R2O Conference supports the national imperative for the effective and efficient transition of research into sustained operations.

          The 7R2O Committee is seeking abstracts in topic areas such as: 

  • Government, Academia, Institutional or Commercial capabilities enabling the transition of research into operations
  • Considerations and best practices for transition of research to operations
  • Earth science product, model and algorithm improvements for weather, water, climate
  • Significant Role of calibration/validation for transitions of research to operations
  • Weather modeling and data assimilation of traditional and non-traditional observations to provide the science-to-operations-to public use-to societal benefits
  • Traditional and non-traditional observations needed from verified, successful research to drive transitions to operations in weather, water and climate
  • Weather, water, and climate testbeds to enable and accelerate transitions of Research-to-Operations for public use.
  • U.S. and International Research to Operations and Common Applications Partnerships

Important Dates

Abstract Submission Deadline: 11 August 2016
Acceptance Emails Sent: late-September 2016

Joint Sessions

The 7R2O Conference will partner with 13NGOESS for joint sessions focused on research to operations opportunities for satellite observations with Stephen Mango and Brian Mischel as the POC:  The topics for these sessions will include:

  • Advances in CubeSats and SmallSats to Improve Earth Science & Weather Forecasting
  • Advances in Satellite Observations and Earth Science and Observing Technologies
  • The 7th annual Town Hall on NASA’s Earth Science: Flight Program Investments in and Planning for the Next-Generation Earth Observatories

Abstract Fee

The $95 abstract fee  (payable by credit card or purchase order) is refundable only if your abstract is not accepted.

What's Included

Your fee includes your abstract, extended abstract (optional), and your recorded oral presentation posted to the online program which is available to all visitors for free. 

Student Award Opportunities

The 7R2O Committee is pleased to host Student Presentation Awards at the 97th AMS Annual Meeting. 

Award certificates and cash prizes will be given for the best Student (undergraduate or graduate) oral and poster presentations. 

Students who wish to be considered for these awards should indicate so when submitting the abstract. 

In order to be considered for an award, the Student must be the lead and presenting author.

The basis for an award will be:
          a.) Originality of the work, 
          b.) Applicability to near-term or projected transition of research-to-operations, and 
          c.) Quality of the presentation and its delivery.
